On this day, John Lennon was gunned down by Mark Chapman. Lennon was a great musician, but didn’t really live up to his image in his personal life. (He treated his wives and son, Julian, like crap.) Either way, he was taken away from the world to soon. Here is my tribute to him:

Give Peace a Chance
(December 8th, 1980)

10:50 pm, BANG, BANG, BANG, BANG in the cold dark night.
This Boy, an idol falls down in front of the Dakota Building entrance.
Happy Xmas (War Is Over),
The music died that night with the legend
Mother, this was a man of peace and brotherly love.
Ask Me Why,
Who would do such a thing?
Imagine, a faceless nobody named Mark David Chapman.
Power to the People,
Why did he do it?
Jealous Guy:
Chapman didn’t want to be a nobody, so he shot our idol
Mind Games,
It doesn’t make sense!
(Just Like) Starting Over,
A wife without a husband and two sons without a father.
#9 Dream,
He walked away to the pearly white gates at 11:07 pm, you know?
Stand by Me
No funeral, just food for the hungry golden yellow flames.
Whatever Gets You thru the Night
His widow kept the ashes.
Woman Is the N****r of the World, she was blamed for breaking up the Fab Four.
Woman, now, you can’t help but feel sorry for her that day.
“You Can’t Do That! It’s not fair! It’s just not fair!”
Instant Karma!
The music died that night with the legend.
Love, it’s all ironic really.
Nobody Told Me, they all treated him like a criminal for the last few years of his life
I’m Stepping Out, he felt safe in NYC two days before the music died
Borrowed Time
“I’ll probably be popped off by some loony.”
